Posted in: News

September, 25, 2019, Hunt Valley, MD — PSA is excited to announce the completion of a plan our leadership team has been working on for over a year. It is a vision designed to ensure an even better experience for our client partners.

After much thought and introspection, Chip Lewis has decided to adjust his role from CEO to Chairman to focus on originating new client relationships, developing partnerships, sourcing acquisitions, and connecting with our people.

Together, the leadership team has appointed Ray Sweet as CEO. Ray Sweet has been at the center of every major decision we have made and has built an extraordinary reputation in our business community. He’s demonstrated a strategic capacity while in his role as PSA’s CFO/COO, and brings with him many years of head executive experience, acting as the CEO of both national and international businesses.
